Similarly, now is a great time to check your detectors and safety lighting. While you don’t think about them every day, they are always on in the background keeping you safe and sometimes require routine maintenance. Change batteries in your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors. And if you have security or safety lighting, make sure those are all operating as expected. If any of your fixtures are still using halogen, fluorescent, or incandescent lamps, consider LED alternatives. They can save a lot of money on your electricity bill, and they last a lot longer than their traditional counterparts.
Time change can be tough on some folks and may cause them to lose sleep with the alteration in routine. If you’re one of those people, consider replacing a few light bulbs in your home with those that cast less blue light, a proven stealer of sleep.
